Barbara

I am a writer.

I began working as a copywriter in San Francisco at Hoefer, Dieterich & Brown (now Chiat Day) with the most creative of creatives as bosses and mentors. But it wasn’t long before the intrigue of Madison Avenue lured me to New York, and although I actually landed in Times Square, I loved every mad second of it. I also spent a year living and working in Paris and four years in Germany, which allowed me to see the world through different windows.

For the past fifteen years, I’ve been a Global Creative Director on some of the best, most iconic brands in the world. I get a thrill out of helping a brand grow. I believe in moments of deep creative thinking, alone, with an old-fashioned paper and pen. And I believe in a passionate team to take that thinking out into the world, with everybody adding to it as it goes.

Now I spend my days thinking, writing, and talking about creativity. And if you’ve read this far, don’t stop now. Email me. I’d love to hear about what you do and how I can help.
